Good early season hike with easy access. The farmhouse is a good place for a break/de-layer before you start your ascent. Lots of elk scat in this area, but we didn’t see any large wildlife. Not recommended for young kids due to exposure, mild scrambling, and need to jump between boulders in a few spots depending on the route you take to the top. That said, rock stability was better than expected. Views at the summit are exceptional, but expect significant winds in the afternoon. Last, make sure to avoid descending towards the east as it’s easy to get cliffed out.
